Glen Garioch Distillery has released one of its rarest whiskies. The single malt distillery announced earlier this week that it has launched a 15 Years Old Glen Garioch matured in Bordeaux casks. The release will be exclusive to Taiwan and will be limited to 1,800 bottles.

With an abv of 50%, Glen Garioch 15 Years Old Bordeaux Wine Cask Finish Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky was launched in Taiwan late last week.

Fergus Hartley, regional director for duty free, Asia Pacific and Americas for Glen Garioch's owners said: "This unusual finish adds a subtle depth to Glen Garioch's hallmark Highland flavours.

"It's absolutely right that this rare bottling is exclusive to Taiwan - we're proud that this is one of Glen Garioch's strongest markets and we know that the Highland stature of Glen Garioch, in combination with the wine influence, will be a character highly appreciated by the discerning Taiwanese consumer."
